Thé, Stay and Play Café has been open since September 2013. The business is registered as a Partnership between Lucy and Heather Baker-Swinburn - partners in business and in life - meeting in 1999, civil partnered since 2008 and business partners since opening our first café in 2013.
Thé, Stay and Play is a soft play cafe situated on Chesham High Street, Buckinghamshire, serving super scrumptious food, cakes and hot and cold drinks. We have an exciting indoor soft play frame for the kids to explore while parents and carers relax and enjoy a well earned break and a natter. Unlike other cafés and coffee shops our layout and menu primarily cater for families with young children.
We recently won 'Best Family Friendly Café Award’ - in Buckinghamshire at the 2018 Food and Drink Awards and continue to be in local newspapers and newsletters.
We want £50,000 to expand Thé, Stay and Play, to open another Café and deliver our bespoke service to another town.
The investment would fund the initial property costs i.e. rent, rates, change of use fees and legal costs, in addition to down payments on soft play equipment and catering equipment.
We want to expand the Thé, Stay and Play brand and have our family-friendly café accessible to more young families.
